If you find yourself overindulging this Thanksgiving, the best thing you can do is get right back on track with your healthy lifestyle the next morning. There’s no better feeling than starting the day with some physical activity to burn off all those extra calories that were consumed the night before.
But before you make your way to the local gym, why not take this opportunity to multitask? With the holidays fast approaching, it’s the perfect time to do some gift shopping.
Before you head out the door, keep in mind it’s Black Friday, and you’re going to have to be ruthless in grabbing your coveted items before someone else. Follow the tips below to maximize your movement and your ability to seize the deals!11 tips
1. Wear gym clothes and sneakers while shopping to move faster and burn more calories
2. Set a goal for how many steps you want to take and use a pedometer to track them.
3. Don’t waste time looking for closer parking – head to the farthest end of the garage to increase the number of steps you take and calories you burn.

8. Sprint up the escalator, or better yet, take the stairs!
